Lamborghini to introduce new limited-edition supercar, new techs coming very soon

In an exclusive speaking engagement with Car Advice during the ongoing 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany, Lamborghini’s Maurizio Reggiani hints at introducing what he calls as the new version of a one-off supercar, even adding that this one-off could be completely sold prior to its revelation. This is comparable to the case of Centenario, which they had introduced with rear wheel steering and which was later on adapted into the Aventador S when it came into production. The director for research and development also said that the company is set to announce some new technologies to go with Lamborghini’s new design. The imminent announcement, he said, is what Lamborghini’s loyal patrons have actually been waiting for.

It can be recalled that Lamborghini had done this previously with the Sesto Elemento, the Veneno Roadster, the Concept J as well as for both the Reventon and the Reventon Roadster. As they did with the Centenario, the soon-to-be-revealed one-off will take the lead in introducing Lamborghini’s future design and technologies. Inevitably, it should give us a first look at the Aventador replacement that is due for release in 3 years.

No concrete details have been confirmed during the talks but Car Advice knew that the Lamborghini Urus will be revealed sometime this December. In the same way, it is likely the new one-off (which is currently without a name yet) will be introduced later within the year while the official public debut will probably have to wait until 2018. At the most, we should be expecting Lamborghini’s one-off supercar at next year’s Geneva Motor Show together with the new Urus.

Ferrari and Lamborghini still not keen on producing electric sports cars

We have already reached a generation wherein automakers are making the switch from gasoline engine cars to hybrid and all electric vehicles. So far, the trend is for automakers to gradually transition their range to accommodate electric vehicles. That’s why it is significant news when automakers say that they’re not looking into electrifying their models.

While Porsche and Bentley are joining the norm by developing sports cars, it seems like Ferrari and Lamborghini have no plans of doing so, and they have just confirmed it, according to Automotive News. Both Italian automakers do not believe that electrification is the future of supercars, but they do believe that hybrid options are.

At the Frankfurt Motor Show, Michael Leiters, Chief Technology Officer of Ferrari, said in an interview with Automotive News that it will take a lot more time, effort and innovation to get the same performance, and more importantly the driving pleasure of what we have today with the non-electrified models. It will not be that easy to replicate the performance and ease that we have now.

2018 Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster is just like the coupe sans the fixed roof

This is a dream come true for those who were wishing that Automobili Lamborghini would create a roadster version of its Aventador S. Just weeks after Lamborghini introduced the Aventador S Coupe, quite a number of renderings of a possible roadster version surfaced. Back then, an Aventador S roadster was just a dream. But now, Italian carmaker is finally introducing the new 2018 Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster.

Even at a glance, the new Lamborghini roadster is easily recognizable as the open-top version of the Aventador S coupe. After all, the roadster has taken up the unmistakable design of the coupe as influenced by the distinctive Lamborghini design DNA and extensive aerodynamic testing.

From the exterior design – especially the front end and to some extent, the rear end – to the mechanicals, the Aventador S Roadster is a reflection of the Aventador S Coupe, but lacking the fixed roof and with the addition of some hardware to ensure that its occupants could be protected from the weather if needed.

This Tonino Lamborghini Alpha-One smartphone may not be worth your cash

It is not often that automakers come up with mobile phones, but it is also not the first time we have heard about it. Oftentimes, it is the luxury automakers that make these kinds of products. For instance, Porsche has partnered with Huawei for the Mate 9 smartphone, and the company sold it for $1,645 (€1,395). After that, it is now Lamborghini that has returned in the smartphone game.

Lamborghini’s smartphone, the Tonino Lamborghini Alpha-One, is at the pricey end of the spectrum just like its cars. By looking at the phone, it clearly looks like a Lamborghini phone with the branding and the design. It has a leather finish, with a Renaissance-style design that comes with the same features as any other smartphone nowadays. But the company is asking for $2,450 for the Android based phone. Crazy, huh? That is three times more expensive than an iPhone 7 and is priced just like a laptop.

The Tonino Lamborghini Alpha-One has a standard 5.5-inch WQHD display with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and Android Nougat. As for the storage, it has as much as 64 GB with an additional expandable storage up to 128GB. It also features 4GB of RAM. Like any other smartphone nowadays, the camera is a vital tool - it comes with a 20-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front camera. Other features include a dual SIM card support, a fingerprint detector, and the 3,250mAh battery. These features are also what we get from other smartphones.

What could be a bad day for a young man? Crashing a Lamborghini Huracan would be. What could be worse? The Lamborghini Huracan isn’t his.

According to a report by Q13 Fox, a 23-year old man in Edmonds, Washington, crashed a rented Lamborghini Huracan onto another vehicle. While the one who rented the supercar was his brother – for a family event in Edmonds -- this careless driver thought it was okay to play with the law.

Around 11:30 pm of August 13, 2017, police officers tapped to patrol the Taste of Edmonds festival saw a female passenger holding a beer while leaning out of the passenger window of a white Lamborghini Huracan. This prompted the police officers to attempt pulling over the Huracan. Unfazed initially, police officers tried to pursue the Huracan. Unfortunately for them, the white Huracan proved to be too fast to be caught up, so police officers gave up the chase, citing speed and safety reasons. However, what ultimately stopped the white Huracan weren’t police officers but an accident some time later.

Everybody gets animated when they hear that a second-hand Lamborghini or a Ferrari will be auctioned. But what makes people even more excited is when the car is a limited edition, or better yet, a one-off production ready concept car. In this case, a 2006 Lamborghini Concept S. A lot of you might think that you have seen this car somewhere, and that is because it is a roofless Gallardo. No, it is not a Spyder if that is what you are thinking, because Spyders have a retractable roof and a windshield.

We first witnessed the 2006 Lamborghini Concept S back in 2005 as a design study. This was done to pay homage to the vintage single-seat, open cockpit race cars during the time Lamborghini was better known for its tractors. But unlike others that had individual cockpits for the driver and the passenger, the Concept S added an extra air inlet for the V10 engine. Both the front and the rear had aerodynamic tweaks that would give the car better downforce.

Initially, it did not matter since the concept did not have an engine, but then Lamborghini built an actual example with an engine. One hundred examples of the Concept S were supposed to be build, and these were supposed to be offered to loyal Lamborghini customers. However, when production finally began, they realized that the cost and time were much more than they have expected, so after the first car was completed, production had been cancelled, making this 2006 model the one and only example.

While combining retro with contemporary styling cues can sometimes not work out so well, this Lamborghini Huracan with Vossen forged wheels prove it all wrong. To start off, the iconic supercar has been fitted with Vossen’s LC-103, making it very much like a modern version of the Countach with a phone dial–inspired wheel design. The LC-103 has a starting price of $1,300 each and is offered in several different sizes.

In this particular Lambo, Vossen uses a single piece monoblock forged alloy wheels in rose gold finish with five rounded holes and polished details. These are nothing like we’ve seen before except those on the classic Lamborghini Countachs of the eighties.

According to the design details on their website, the Vossen Forged LC-103 wheel and Lip concept series aims to emulate the transition of multi-piece wheel while incorporating the forged aluminum’s single piece monoblock construction at the same time. The finishing options are done at Vossen’s very own, state of the art finishing facilities that produce only the best quality finishes.

It is not like the Lamborghini Aventador does not perform well when we’re comparing performance. But some tuners just like to fiddle with car parts, which is the main reason why they exist. This is where Novitec Torado comes in. More than a year ago, Novitec actually put its sights on the Lamborghini Aventador SV Coupe.

First of all, Novitec put the coupe into a carbon fiber diet, by replacing some of its parts to make it extra lightweight. Other than that, they also changed the engine into a 6.5 liter V12 for an extra push. So what happens when you combine a stronger engine and a lightweight car? You all know the answer.

But let us get into more detail first. The new engine has now been supercharged, as Novitec got rid of the naturally aspirated one, letting the car generate a total of 970 horsepower, from the standard’s 750 horsepower. That’s a whopping 220 horsepower increase from the original model, which is pretty insane.

We have seen some pretty cool taxis around before. They may not be common, but we know they exist. It might be a retro Cadillac, perhaps an open-top Range Rover Evoque, or a Ford Crown Victoria. And now, the Lamborghini Huracan? Yup, it is now the world’s fastest taxi.

The Huracan has a 5.2 liter naturally aspirated V10 engine with a maximum power output of 610 horsepower and a maximum torque of 560 Newton-metres. In just 3.8 seconds, it can run from 0-100 kilometers per hour, with a top speed of 322 kph.

Now, how is this possible, you ask? A UK-based taxi company called Handsome Cabs was able to receive a license from their local council to run a Lamborghini Huracan as a taxi, for restricted use only. So Lincoln residents can finally hire the supercar to get to the mall, parties, prom night, business meeting, and other special occasions. However, it is more likely that residents would hire the car for special events only as it will probably be a little pricey.

Most, if not all cars, can be tuned one way or another to cater to the customer’s liking. But some cars, like the Lamborghini Huracan, have way more potential when it comes to tuning - and we’re not just talking about tuning it visually, but also mechanically.

It’s not surprising then that with all the attention it attracts, Japanese tuner Liberty Walk and Underground Racing had both worked on the Lamborghini Huracan in the past to give it an extra oomph. The former worked on the supercar’s new body kit while the latter took care of its powerhouse, unlocking the Huracan’s capacity to an unimaginable 2,300 horsepower.

The odd thing is that the owner of the car, a young lady, only asked for a car that would stick out among all the other amazing cars in Dubai. She took the car to RevoZport, who then added Razmig active aerodynamic components to the supercar. It came back to her with an impressive amount of power, indeed making it stand out amongst every other car or supercar in Dubai.

Last month, we heard about the Lamborghini Aventador SV that was listed on eBay. You’re right, the one-off vehicle finished in a Verde Singh paint, that was being sold along with the matching speed boat.

A few days ago, an Aventador S came out at the Goodwood Festival of Speed with a beautifully painted matte-finish Grigio Acheso with orange accent, combined with an interior that matches the exterior design, by Ad Personam.

Now, photos of the last ever Lamborghini Aventador SV have been circulating online, as Lamborghini Edinburgh delivers the specific model to its designated buyer. This is the last Aventador SV to ever roll off the assembly line at Sant’Agata Bolognese, making it extra special.

Lamborghini decided to reveal a one-off Aventador S, built by their Ad Personam division, at the recent 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The car’s exterior has a beautiful bluish-grey matte finish they call Grigio Acheso, combined with matte orange lines all over the body. The roof is made with glossy carbon, paired with a matte black exhaust system, and black multi-spoke wheels with bright orange brake calipers.

Inside the cabin, you’ll find a two-tone cabin in black Alcantara with orange accents, to match the exterior design. The colours extend from steering wheel, all the way to the seats. There are contrast stitching, orange trim, and an Opera Unica plate that indicates the car’s unique specification.

Sorry Uber, but Handsome Cabs taxi company has something no one else can offer - a Lamborghini Huracan that can take their clients from Point A to Point B. This has been made official after the City of Lincoln Council granted a cab license to the Huracan, to make it available for hire if local residents wish to.

The two-door coupe is one of the first supercars to ever be granted a cab license - not just in the UK, but probably elsewhere in the world. This allows customers to order the Huracan for a trip to the train station, the shops, or any mundane errand. But what will be more practical is renting out the Lambo for weddings, business trips, or special occasions.

Handsome Cabs taxi is owned by John Bishop of West Lindsey, and his partner Jamal Parvez. The partners thought it would be something different, and that it would help their company stand out from the rest. They did mention that their target market would mostly be students going to and from proms, and of course, business people going to functions. “We had the idea about a year or so ago, and since then we’ve been determined to make it work”, said Bishop.

The Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster may be the fastest car out there, capable of reaching 60 miles from standstill in just 2.8 seconds, plus having a top speed of 217 miles per hour. But where will the Aventador end up if it runs out of road to drive on? We all know that the planet is made up of 70 percent water.

Well, that doesn't seem to be a problem. If you have the money to get yourself that roadster, you sure can afford a speedboat to pair with it. There is a listing on JamesEdition in Fort Lauderdale of a Lambo Aventador SV Roadster with a matching catamaran. And yes, they really do have matching colours.

Just like the roadster, the catamaran was customized to look like it is the supercar's big brother. The 52-foot MTI G6 has been finished with a Verde Singh shade paired with Alcantara upholstery, and of course the carbon fiber trim. And that's not all, as the speedboat comes with a steering wheel, marinized switchgear, door panels, and lighting from the Aventador - literally the works.

Last month, the Lamborghini Centenario made its way to the Transformers: The Last Knight premiere where it got the attention of many. Following that event, three Lamborghini Centenario coupes landed on the US soil. One of them made its way to Lamborghini Newport Beach, while the two went straight to Beverly Hills and New Jersey, respectively. And this week, another Centenario arrives, but as a drop top.

We are aware that only a total of 40 units of the Centenario will be produced - 20 roadsters and 20 coupes. Last week, Lamborghini Beverly Hills took one of the 20 Centenario Roadsters. Similar to the coupe, the limited-edition roadster has a V12 engine that produces 759 horsepower (565 kilowatts). The most common colour scheme for the roadster would be the one on the photo, a bare carbon fiber finish with yellow accents, paired with silver wheels and black brake calipers.

To complement the exterior finish, the roadster's interior has been finished with Black Nero Ade leather and Alcantara throughout, accented with yellow piping and stitching on the seats. The steering wheel and the dashboard also get yellow embroidery. As standard with all Lamborghini vehicles, the company's logo is stitched on the headrests.

Novitec is often pushing the boundaries in the field of conversion technology. There’s no questioning why Novitec’s N-Largo widebody and performance kits have become incredibly popular among automotive enthusiasts. There’s always room in the industry for more customization after all.

The tuning experts from Germany recently unveiled their newest addition to the lineup, the Novitec N-Largo Lamborghini Huracan Spyder. In its standard form, the N-largo Lamborghini is basically a Huracan Spyder, but it features a supercharged engine and a body that’s wider by 24 centimeters courtesy of Novitec’s N-Largo widebody kit.

Novitec’s modification package is offered to all units under Huracan Spyder’s model range, adding not just to its width but also providing the vehicle with more efficient aerodynamics. In addition, the naturally aspirated V10 engine gets supercharged with a whopping 860hp and 709lb-ft of torque.

In an interview involving Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali and Automotive News, the topic about the Urus was thoroughly discussed. This super SUV is scheduled to make its debut later this year. Domenicali also told them that the Urus should be in the hands of customers by mid-2018. With a starting price of less than €200,000 ($223,000), the company expects it to play a major role in terms of sales, expecting to sell over 7,000 units annually by 2019. There were exactly 3,457 supercars that left the Lamborghini factory in Sant’Agata Bolognese last year.

Besides the Urus, Domenicali revealed to Automotive News that the niche market is analysing the prospects of developing a four seater sports car, when asked about Lamborghini’s plans beyond the hot SUV - making the interview much more interesting. But don’t be too excited, as they company has planned for its release in the “2025 to 2030 horizon”, that is a long time from now.

Not so long ago, there were rumours that Lamborghini’s fourth model will take inspiration from the past. What they really meant was that the timeless Miura might get a modernized interpretation, according to Domencali. But like he said, though it receives a stamp of approval, the 21st century Miura will not be out in the next coming years.

TV personality Kylie Jenner was seen stepping out with her orange Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster in Los Angeles on Saturday. Being one of the world’s greatest influencers on social media, Jenner took the time to show off her exquisite taste in Italian supercars by posing and posting selfies with her “latest squeeze”.

Her chosen one of course is the naturally aspirated V12 Aventador LP750-40 SV that costs over half a million USD. The flashy orange finish is just the icing on the cake as the monster can juice out a powerful 740hp (750PS) and 509lb-ft (690Nm) of torque.

The reality star has been glued to her cellphone from morning until night that same weekend. Sitting on the driver’s seat with the front door open high into the air, Jenner poses showing off her legs while stepping out of the roadster. That was only during the day. Different snaps of the 19-year old teen star were shared on her social media later that evening.

Lamborghini has been saying for a long time that it is aiming to boost up the production of its supercars, but only recently the Italian sports car producer has made the 8,000th Huracan. This is highly commendable as it took Lamborghini only 3 years to reach this milestone. The Italian automaker sure is in a rush to roll them out, and when the Urus joins the line-up, one might chance upon a Wild Bull on every corner globally.

The aforementioned 8,000th vehicle is a Huracan Spyder that is sporting a Grigio Lynx gray. It will be delivered to a customer based in the United Kingdom. The Italian automaker is now celebrating the 8,000th unit of the Huracan that is rolled out of the assembly line in Sant'Agata Bolognese, just 3 years after the Huracan's introduction, another milestone in the 54-year-old history of the Italian automaker. Interested Huracan consumers will be offered a range of choices when deciding on which version of the super car to purchase.

The LP 610-4 is a unit that a daring driver can take on every season with its impressive all-wheel system and hardtop. Drivers who prefer a conventional vehicle can choose the 580-2 rear wheel drive. Moreover, if you are the person who opts to drop the top for an open-air experience at high speed, then the Spyder models will be the perfect pick for such. Sitting at the top of the tier is the superb Huracan Performante.

Automobili Lamborghini is extending its expertise in the field of carbon fiber composite materials – in the area of research and production in particular – into the medical world by entering into a collaboration project with the Houston Methodist Research Institute.

Lamborghini and the Houston Methodist Research Institute is now pursuing a research project into the biocompatibility of these lightweight composite materials when used to create prosthetic implants as well as subcutaneous devices, as employed in the medical industry. The new research project should help Lamborghini discover new materials that aren’t only lighter than the existing composites in the medical field, but are also better tolerated by the human body. Likewise, these new materials should also be more resistant and more durable than existing composites.

The agreement for the research project was inked between Mauro Ferrari, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Houston Methodist Research Institute, and Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. Ferrari’s primary fields of specialty are nanotechnology research and applied bioengineering in medicine. Lamborghini, meanwhile, boasts of being one of the leaders in research and production of carbon fiber composite materials.
